If you are new to OptoDesigner, you can follow these tutorials to learn the basics: how to place elements in your design and connect your elements to each other.
This tutorial shows how you create a PIC design in OptoDesigner and export it to GDS. The example circuit is a Mach-Zehnder interferometer with an MMI and a thermo-optic phase modulator.
We developed a family of advanced "connectors" and (auto-) routing functionality. Video 1 shows how to implement a PhoeniX connector in a design; video 2 shows phase sensitive connectors.
The following document shows real-world example cases of Design Rule Checks (DRC) and an overview of DRC functions in OptoDesigner.
